Camp Verde and Pine, May 30, 2014 GPS Map

On a lark, Jacque and I decided to go museum-hopping in Camp Verde and in Pine. Both were impressive in different ways. The Fort Verde State Historic Park has buildings, artifacts, maps, documents and displays depicting Army life in Arizona Territory. The Pine-Strawberry Museum celebrates domestic life in the Rim country during pioneer times.

Afterwards we enjoyed a tasty lunch at the Ayothaya Thai Café, in Payson on highway 260 across from Safeway. It has become a favorite with hikers in our club.
